The Beastie Boys bring out the star power for their ‘Make Some Noise‘ video, which features Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood and Danny McBride as older versions of the hell-raising Beasties. The actors wreak havoc while donning costumes identical to those in the trio’s legendary ‘Fight for Your Right (to Party)’ video.

The video begins with the actors busting out of a smoke-filled room to the tune of the Beasties’ 1986 hit. Channeling the Beastie Boys’ rowdy behavior from the ‘Fight for Your Right’ video, Rogen, Wood and McBride break into a convenience store and score some stolen beers.

As ‘Make Some Noise’ begins playing, the actors take turns leaning into the camera pretending to rap the lyrics in slow-motion, a trademark of past Beasties music videos. Keep an eye out for Wood’s dead-on impersonation of a young Ad-Rock.

The goofy clip also features Ted Danson as a restaurant owner whose business the “Beastie Boys” destroy, and Will Ferrell as a gold-toothed limo driver who plays — you guessed it — the cowbell.

The fake Beasties eventually meet up with another group of impostors, played by Ferrell, Jack Black and John C. Reilly. The video fades out as the two groups engage in an epic stare down.

The footage of the A-list actors also appears in the trio’s extended short film ‘Fight for Your Right – Revisited.’ ‘Make Some Noise’ is the first single from the band’s latest album, ‘Hot Sauce Committee Part 2.’
